The Wabtec Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Wabtec Corporation, today announced a donation of $30,000 to support local relief efforts in Texas following last week’s winter storm and destructive power outages. The donation will be split among three nonprofits: Salvation Army of North Texas, Tarrant Area Food Bank, and the Tarrant County Homeless Coalition.
Wabtec has more than 1,200 employees across multiple sites in Texas, including its one-million-sq-ft locomotive plant in Fort Worth.
The Salvation Army of North Texas provided food, shelter and warm clothing during the storm. “Thank you to Wabtec and its employees for recognizing the importance of our most vulnerable neighbors having food, shelter and warm clothing during the record-low winter temperatures,” said Christina Cavalier, Senior Director of Community Relations for The Salvation Army of North Texas. “The generous donation will help our organization to continue to meet our mission of helping those in need – whenever and wherever the need exists.”
